25 Things

spring flowers


1.  I. miss. you.

2.  Long, long ago  (6 months ago), I set a goal for myself and this little blog.

3.  I decided that no matter how busy I got in the camp kitchen, I’d still make time to blog.

4.  After all, many working women do it.

5.  I wish I could figure out how.

6.  Truth is, I just had 1 1/2 days off.

7.  I had visions of painting the deck rail and blogging up a storm.

8.  Instead, I went to the chiropractor, took Advil, and plopped myself in a deck chair ~ strategically positioned to be half shade, half sun.

9.  I devoured 2 books.

10.  And slept.

11.  If this blog were a “cooking for a camp” blog, I’d have lots to write about…

12.  Posts could be titled something like this: “How to Clean a Pool of Pancake Syrup off the Floor.”

13.  Or, “How not to Have a Nervous Breakdown while Cooking for a Celiac Who is Also Anaphylactic to Gluten while Simultaneously Cooking for 125 Others Who Want Gluten in High Measures”

14. But since this is a home decor blog and I’m hardly ever home, projects are a bit slim these days.

15.  I have clean laundry and dishes thanks to my husband (bless his heart).

16.  And I did finish one project a few weekends ago.

17.  In fact, I gave you a teaser in the last post.

18.  I’ve been hesitating to do the “big reveal” since it’s not totally finished yet.

19.  But, who am I kidding?

20.  It probably won’t really be finished until months from now!

21.  So, tomorrow I’ll be back with my happy new front door.

22. I know this is supposed to be 25 things, but I’m just too tired for 3 more…

23.  Except that picture at the top of the post?

24.  That’s our blooming irises and peonies.

25.  They were really happy this year.:)
